Missouri hunter ordered to repeatedly watch Bambi after he killed hundreds of deer

6 month ago

A Missouri hunter had been sentenced to a year in prison and to watch the movie "Bambi" repeatedly for illegally killing hundreds of deer.

David Berry Jr. must now watch the Walt Disney movie once a month while he serves his year-long sentence after he perpetrated one of the largest deer poaching cases in the U.S. history, according to conservation agents.

Berry was killing the deer for their heads, then left the bodies to rot. Three other relatives and another man were arrested in connection with the poaching case.

They all have paid a total of $51,000 in fines and court costs.

Berry was convicted in southwest Missouri's Lawrence County of illegally taking wildlife. He is also sentenced for a firearms probation violation to 120 days in prison.
